Welcome to Belmont Synagogue!
Belmont Synagogue is an orthodox community of six hundred families in north-west London founded in the mid-1960s. We have a wide range of communal activities including daily services, educational programmes and special activities for all age groups.
The community is led by Rabbi Marc Levene and his wife Lisa, as well as Chair, Barbara Mazliah, and a Council of Management.
No longer one of the best kept secrets in the United Synagogue, we are surrounded by excellent Jewish primary and secondary schools.
Belmont is also surrounded by an eruv, which connects to other local eruvim and makes it easier to celebrate Shabbat with friends and family.
You will find more about Belmont on this website but the best way to get to know us it to visit. We promise you a very warm welcome.
Please note that after New Year we will be operating winter weekday service times. Sundays will continue with Mincha and Maariv, but Monday to Thursday we will be davening Maariv ONLY at 7.30pm each evening. We will not be holding a weekday Mincha Service.
Arrangements for services
The US has confirmed that in line with Government policy, face masks are required for all attendees (apart from the service leader or speaker) at all indoor services and activities. This is apart from when eating or drinking or for those aged under 11. The United Synagogue has also made it a requirement that all members over the age of 11 take a lateral flow test before attending Shul and only attend if their test is negative.
All other precautions such as hand sanitisation and social distancing will continue.
Kiddush will be in takeaway bags.
As always, these policies will be reviewed regularly.
Thank you for helping us to keep the Belmont community safe.
